1988 Jose Canseco of the A's becomes baseball's first 40-40 player when he swipes his 39th and 40th base in a 14-inning victory over the Brewers, 9-8. The Oakland slugger, who will finish the season with 42 homers and 40 stolen bases, will never have a 30-30 season in his 17 years in the major leagues.
1998 With his team ahead 7-5 in the bottom of the ninth inning with the bases full of Brewers and two outs, Cubs' outfielder Brant Brown drops Geoff Jenkins's routine long fly ball to left field, allowing three runs to score, giving Milwaukee an 8-7 walk-off win at County Stadium. The infamous error will be immortalized by Ron Santo's radio call when the broadcaster mournfully exclaims, "Nooooooooo!!!!!" as the ball rolls toward the ivy-covered wall.

2001 Sammy Sosa sets a major league record with his third three-homer game of the season, hitting #'s 56, 57, and 58 off Astros' rookie Tim Redding. Slammin' Sammy also accomplished the feat against the Rockies (August 9) and the Brewers (August 22).
2006 In Milwaukee's Miller Park, Barry Bonds hits his 734th career homer, surpassing Hank Aaron, and establishes a new all-time National League home run mark. The historic long ball hit by the unpopular 42 year-old Giants slugger receives little fanfare in the city in which 'Hammerin' Hank,' a former player for the Braves and Brewers, is a local legend.
2011 The Brewers win their first division title in 29 years when they beat Florida 4-1. Ryan Braun's three-run home run in the eighth inning, breaking the 1-1 deadlock, is the decisive blow in the Miller Park clincher.
